One of the most useful tools for finding out if a cat has an owner is the ‘paper collar’. This allows to ‘link up’ with any possible owner. A collar available here to print and cut out.

The Napier SPCA can provide you with a stray cat collar and some information about stray cats. It is a good idea to go around your neighbourhood, at least 10 houses either side of you, and across the road. The cat most likely belongs to somebody within a few hundred metres’ radius of where it was found.

Creating a flyer and distributing them around your neighbourhood, at supermarkets and shopping centres can help locate the owner.
